Achy bones, strange headaches, mystery rash...Lyme disease?

Several weeks ago I developed a rash after visiting Pennsylvania. The rash has faded, but it did look like some of the Lyme disease rashes that I looked up online - the non-bulls-eye type.

Also, for about a week now, I've been feeling crummy...achey all over - even in the bones under my teeth and my cheekbones. It started a week ago Sunday when I had crazy headaches all day long. I truly experienced about 5 different types of headaches throughout the day. I've had headaches nearly every day (I rarely get headaches) and have had to take Tylenol once a day for days (I rarely take medication of any kind). I've had a low-grade fever (99.2F) a couple of times, have felt just...tired a lot.

The aches aren't constant; they come and go and are worse at night. Like, today, I went most of the day without anything, but my cheekbones and face just started hurting all of a sudden at around 7:30 pm.

My question is this: could this possibly be Lyme disease? The rash I had started to fade a couple of days ago. Does this happen with Lyme disease or does the rash stay?
